Feng Lingran went back to the regent mansion after getting back from the imperial court, but he did not see Xiao Xi. He asked Qin Wen where Xiao Xi was, but Qin Wen couldn’t tell as well.
After Xiao Xi went out, she disappeared like a ghost. Qin Wen was not there, just listening to the guard at the door.
Moreover, Lord recently “excessively pampered” Miss Xi Er, and he even called her affectionately as little disciple. If she wanted to go out, who dared to stop her?
No one knew that Xiao Xi was in Minister Liu’s mansion now. She was wearing a taoist robe while chanting and waving the hossu.
Xiao Xi spat at her saliva at the talisman and stuck it on Minister Liu’s forehead.
Minister Liu felt disgusted for a while. Sniffing the fishy smell on the talisman, he almost vomited, “Taoist Zhu Xu, this talisman…”
Xiao Xi shook the hossu to her left arm and said unfathomably, “This talisman is written in the red soup provided by your concubine. I have cast a spell that is enough to suppress the evil qi in your house. Evil spirits will not dare to approach minister’s mansion. Minister Liu, where you are standing now, is in the Five Elements Eight Trigrams where Yang Qi is the most abundant. Once this talisman absorbs the sun’s true energy into your body, from then on, no evil spirits or monster will dare to invade you.”
When Minister Liu heard this, he was overjoyed. He immediately felt that the fishy embarrassment on the talisman was not so unbearable. He felt that he was about to become the invincible man in this world.
“Taoist Zhu Xu, how long do I have to stand with this talisman?”
He had been standing for almost an hour.
“The sun is the strongest at noon and at sunset. Minister Liu, you have to stand here until the sun sets, until the last sunlight disappears in your mansion, then it is only considered as complete.”
“So long?” Minister Liu’s face turned pale. Now there is still more than an hour before noon, do I really have to stand here for a day?
“When I was training iron palm and shadowless kick, I stood ten days under the sun at July. Yours is just a piece of cake.”
“Iron palm? Shadowless kick?” He had never heard of these techniques.
“Yeah.” Xiao Xi started bragging again, “If you want to achieve success, how can you not let your flesh and bone be reborn? Therefore, I use my hand to stir the burning sand. My skin was coming off layer by later, and I finally cultivated the iron palm. As for the shadowless kick, it was even harder. I need to remove my shoes to walk on the edge of the blade. Don’t see that my legs are fine now, I only had my bones left previously when I cultivated that. Do you think it is easy?”
Minister Liu sighed and looked at “Taoist Zhu Xu” with admiring eyes. He was convinced. “Taoist, I’m really impressed by you so much. Your courage is unmatched.”
Even the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty today does not have the courage of “Taoist Zhu Xu”.
If Xiao Xi knew what Minister Liu was thinking at the moment, she would probably laugh to death.
“Now that regent has woken up without a problem, and the evil qi in Minister Liu and Asistant Minister Wei’s mansions has also been expelled, what I have to do is done. There is always an end to a banquet. I’m leaving now.”
As soon as Xiao Xi said this, Minister Liu immediately winked at the butler and let him give Xiao Xi the small copper box in his hand.
Xiao Xi took the small copper box and didn’t need to open it. Knowing that it was full of money, she grinned at the corner of her mouth. Before she left, she said to Minister Liu, “By the way, after the sun sets, you have to swallow the talisman right away. That will be the best for you.”
After that, Xiao Xi left the Mansion. The little concubine who provided the red soup was not far from Minister Liu. Her face was red. Does master really have to swallow my period?
Not long after Xiao Xi left the mansion, She found a place to change the taoist robe and tore off the human skin mask on her face, including the voice-changing apple.
I have to say that Nu Er’s disguise technique is really unique. It is really vivid. She can even change my voice!
With Nu Er, I won’t have to worry about putting shame on that lewd taoistm, Zhu Xu…
Xiao Xi opened the small copper box and saw a stack of money inside. Her small mouth widened slightly. Corrupted minister! Really is corrupted…
Xiao Xi was not in a hurry to return to the regent mansion. Since her master was staying there, she was very free. She had nothing to worry about.
In the restaurant, she ordered a table of delicacies and had a full meal.
The bamboo leaf wine here was sweet and delicious. Xiao Xi also drank a lot. She packed some foods that she thought were nice. Her delicate face was pinkish, and her clear eyes seemed to be blurred by the alcohol. They were shaky which made them quite moving.
“Little beauty, I want to befriend with you…”
Xiao Xi looked at the pig head young master and sneered. This pig head young master was bewildered. When he extended his pig hand, Xiao Xi kicked him away. The pig head young master was caught off guard, so this kick made him roll down from the second floor stairs.
Why Xiao Xi kicked him without saying a word?
Xiao Xi would tell you that she would be angry when she saw a man with lewd eyes! She would think of lewd taoist, Zhu Xu
She wanted to beat that lewd taoist, Zhu Xu for a long time.
The pig head young master’s face was swollen, almost falling to death.
“Damn woman, you dare to hit me? Do you know that I’m not someone you can afford to offend?”
Xiao Xi was dizzy, looking at the pig head like she was looking at the clown.
“My father is the prime minister. You get the fuck down now, kowtow to me thrice and lick my golden boots.”
Xiao Xi thought of Ling Ru. It turns out that this pig head is his son.
Does the prime minister or regent have more power?
Xiao Xi began to think about this question in her dizzy mind. Suddenly, she smiled. As she was very drunk, her smile was exceptionally charming.
“Your father is the prime minister. Wow! His official position is so high! I’m so scared.”
The pig head young master’s soul was flying away seeing Xiao Xi’s smile. He thought of beginning this girl back to his mansion to torture instead of letting her kowtow, then he said, “It’s good that you are scared. You now follow me back and I will spare your life.
“Is that so?” Xiao Xi seemed to be thinking, “But, I already have a fiancé. If you want to take me back to the prime minister’s mansion, you must get my fiancé’s consent.”
The pig head young master suddenly felt unhappy, “Who is your fiance? I’m the son of the prime minister and the future prime minister. Do I have to be afraid of your fiancé? I will now follow you back to beat up your fiancé. Lets see if he still dares to snatch my woman?”
Hearing the words, all the diners scolded the pig head young master for being shameless. How did the prime minister give birth to such a beast? He failed to flirt with someone else’s fiancee, now he wants to snatch her relying his father official position. He even wants to beat her fiancé.
This is too unruly.
Although Xiao Xi was small, her smile was fake. Her fiance was the regent.
“Young master, if you can really beat my fiance, you are the hero in my heart.”
The pig head patted his chest and guaranteed to beat up her fiancé after being electrocuted by Xiao Xi’s glamorous eyes.
When I say my father’s position, who dare to fight with me?
When Xiao Xi was about to leave, a pair of moon-like dark eyes looked over from a private room. Seeing the face he missed, his fingers trembled. He left the chair and walked out of the private room.
“Xi’er, Xi’er…” Nan Gongyin hugged Xiao Xi who was about to leave. There was lovesickness in his eyes, and he greedily looked at Xiao Xi’s delicate face, “Xi’er, it’s really you .”
Xiao Xi looked at the man who suddenly hugged her with drunken eyes. She saw a jade mask, but she would never forget that look and voice, it was Nan Gongyin.
Xiao Xi exhaled with the fragrance of bamboo leaf wine, and smiled, “Young Master Nangong, are you here to find Xi Er? Or Miss Xiao?”
Nan Gongyin was startled slightly. These bright and clear eyes were almost exactly the same as the Xiao Xi he knew. If not, how could he recognize the wrong person just now?
Nan Gongyin slowly let go of Xiao Xi. He had some doubts and unwillingness, but he didn’t know why he was unwillinng.
“Sorry, I was impolite.” Nan Gongyin looked at Xiao Xi and continued, “Miss Xi Er, Xiao Xi is in his mansion, isn’t it?”
The “his” in Nan Gongyin’s words referred to Feng Lingran.
After a pause, Nan Gongyin said again, “Xiao Xi is already my wife. You can rest assured that I’m here to take her away.”
That means taking away Xiao Xi, so that Xiao Xi had no chance to compete with Xi Er for Feng Lingran.
This was really a good plan. If she was the real Xi Er, she might fall for it.
But she was not Xi Er, and she wouldn’t fall for it.
Xiao Xi glanced at a certain private room, and she saw a familiar taoist inside and the face that she wanted to hit.
Xiao Xi retracted her gaze and smiled and said to Nan Gongyin, “Don’t waste your time, Xiao Xi is dead. Her body is decayed, so Young Master Nangong please go back where you come from!”
Xiao Xi saw Nan Gongyin’s figure staggered back. His moon-like eyes flashed in panic. Xiao Xi had no feeling in her heart. She only felt amused. If she didn’t know the person in front of her beat her so badly, she would have thought that this man was really worrying for her.
“Impossible; impossible.” Nan Gongyin was flustered and squeezed his hands tightly.
“How is it impossible? Xiao Xi was bruised when she was brought back by Nu Er. Even Wan Qiyu was helpless. Who else in this world can save her?
The pig head young master’s patience was at his limit. He wanted to beat up Nan Gongyin, Seeing that Xiao Xi had come down, he didn’t bother about the man who recognized the wrong woman.
The only thing he wanted to do now was to beat up the fiance of the little beauty in front of him as soon as possible, then he would bring her back to trample on her.
Xiao Xi walked in through the side door of the regent mansion with the pig head young master. Since this person came to die, she didn’t want to scare him away.
Steward Qin saw Xiao Xi coming back, his expression on his face relaxed. He walked over quickly, “Miss Xi Er…”
Xiao Xi spoke before Steward Qin, “This young master wants to take me to his mansion as a concubine; he is here to challenge Feng Lingran.”
